Plum Bread and Science Fair Projects

My wife just took a fantastic smelling plumb bread out of the oven and I suddenly was hit with a memory of a science fair project one of my daughters did 20 or 25 years ago.

She took two slices of bread, some from whole wheat, some multi grain, white, and home made and put one slice in a Ziploc baggy and the other left out in the air. Her premise was the better for you breads would last longer left out in the open.

What do you think the results were? Was she right?

Ok, back to eating this delicious plum bread.

Define last longer... not mold, not dry out and become stale....??
Home made is usually cut thicker.. so it won't dry out so fast, but whole grain can be a bit drier to start out with because the fiber in it tends to absorb a lot of water and unless you really give it more liquid than is happy handling it for making loaves to start, it will be drier at the get go... many variables here

Good things come to those who wait. Actually I missed the email indicating someone actually responded to my crazy post.

Ok, to the best of my aged memory, she was looking for texture and visual indicators. I remember the look of mold on some of the slices, and her reaction as any young female teen would. Priceless!

Results? Homemade bread spoiled the fastest when looking at the mold that appeared in just a day or so (no preservatives). Then the other "healthy" breads started to fail growing very unusual and pretty molds. But the winner of the bread that lasted the longest was the cheapest white bread she could find. It never got moldy, just hard as a rock. The packaging indicated it contained additives to retard spoilage that are probably banned as carcinogenic by now!!!

She got a 1st place on that science project and it stuck with her. Today she has her doctorate in pharmacy and manages a retail pharmacy.
